Kanopy Dance Company presents Emergence: Gaia Rising.

April 17-19, 2015

Seeds sleep the winter chill away, and in respect for the warming sun, the spring rains and receptive earth, a new beginning emerges, as does new and original dance…

A piquant potpourri of new dances presented by local, national, and international choreographers. Maureen Janson, director of Smartdance presents a postmodernist work. Audience-favorite Kiro Kopulos, unveils a work informed by Japanese Butoh. Robert E Cleary re-invents his ‘Primavera Portena.’ Tiana Ching Maslanka, premieres a dance based on Scottish folklore. Brienna Tipler, a work inspired by Monet masterpieces. Carlos Ramirez, director of Danztrad, blends Mexican folkloric and modern dance. Juan Carlos Díaz Vélez, presents a fusion of Flamenco with contemporary ballet.
